Well for my soon (ish) to be Checkmated a1200 I decided I needed a bit more oomph. I know everyone is going nuts for 68060s but I splashed out an a nice Blizzard 1230 MkIV with fpu and 32mb RAM. That will do for this one. It also means I can run CWB3.9 as I have got bored with 3.1.4.1 being honest. I just have to get a version set up for this machine as my CWB3.9 setup is tailored for my tower with mediator and SCSI kit and all sort of bits and bobs including RTG.
Oh well, another bit of a project before the case arrives. :D

Blizzard 1230MKIV best accelerator ever - best combo of performance, value and compatibility.

Cheers Steve but I think I have mostly sorted it :D

Just noticed that DOPUS wont run as its complaining about needing version 37 of the mathieeesingbas library or something....will need to see whats going on there.
 
Well some more progress - I was having issues with Dopus and Miami etc but seem to have resolved them. biggest issue was i was softkicking a custom rom where I think i had some specific 060 files in there. Now I have sorted that, updated dopus (must remember to do this on my main amiga as well) and got miami working quickly, so I can access my NAS as well as aminet.
 
I had one of those boards back in the days and ran it at 60 Mhz. It was quite stable but crashed a few times when running Doom. A small heatsink would maybe had solved that problem.

Now I'm stuck at 40 Mhz with my ACA1233n :D Good board but I miss the overclock ability.
